2 Samuel 23:20, which says, “And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada…went down and struck down a lion in a pit on a day when snow had fallen” (ESV). He uses the NLT which uses the term, chased a lion . . .
In some ways, he is retelling some of the story from In a Pit. . . but he adds to it. This is a book of encouragement. In some ways, you may be skeptical that this will all work. If you don't follow your dreams, if your dreams are too small . . . There is that utopian image he portrays.
Yet, this is a book which focuses on not settling for a less than life. It's about not accepting mediocrity. He tells stories about the advent of National Community Church and their coffee house and many of their ministries and the lives of others who have been changed over the years because they caught a vision of hope.
In the end, this is a very good book, meant to give the reader a vision for something better, to give the reader a sense of purpose and hope, to dream.
I received this book in exchange for my unbiased and honest opinion from www.bloggingforbooks.com.
